So it begins, get a good lure retriever or be ready to swim for it. I have a few pretty expensive Deps that I've jumped in to get a bunch but dang they catch fish!

The owner/creator has hopped on here before and advised to use 20-25# mono, you need the stretch in order to prevent a 'cast-off'. I posted about one a while back, will try to find the thread.

They will catch fish, just not happy with the quality.
6" Gizzard is my favorite

Your not suppose to say that catch fish, it's suppose to be secret, now you'll see 2oz swimbaits flying in the air everywhere....I got the 6" gizzard shad, I bought it just to buy it, I'll throw it around stumps, I don't care.

What do you mean?

For $60 I was thinking the quality would be great no?
